Summer 2017 quarter (First Session)

Taught by

mathematics, history of science


Good background in college algebra and some trigonometry.

This program is focused on differential calculus. The derivative is introduced intuitively using geometry and dynamics, defined rigorously using limits, and applied to problems in geometry and the physical sciences. All standard theorems and symbolic differentiation techniques are developed and used to determine the properties of functions and their graphs. Strong emphasis will be placed on optimization. Precalculus topics will be covered as they are needed in the calculus curriculum. Background in college algebra and trigonometry are essential for success.
